About the Ministry
Unlike church in America, most churches in Honduras do not have any type of children’s or youth ministry. Although the idea is counter–cultural, CCH has invested time and resources into encouraging ongoing ministry that specifically targeted children and teenagers. The response was overwhelming; children quickly began to outnumber the adults in church.
But perhaps the greatest success story is about the youth group of the church in Las Lajas. After meeting for some time, the youth asked their leader to accompany them on a ‘mission trip’ into some of the poorer villages. Since then, many of the youth from Las Lajas volunteer with our mission to serve alongside the teams of American volunteers when we do VBS, deliver Christmas gifts, build churches, and work in the villages.
Where We’ve Served
If you've been traveling to Honduras with us for a while now, you've watched dozens of children grow up in this village we all love so much. Ocomán is one the of closest villages to our home base in Las Lajas and plays a vital role in our ministry efforts.
Meet El Cerrón
El Cerrón is one of our most remote villages, located high in the mountains behind our medical clinic. Because of its location, El Cerrón has very limited access to outside supplies and provisions, making this one of the most malnourished and undeveloped villages we support.
Meet El Peñon
Tucked away in the mountains surrounding the community of Las Lajas, El Peñon is a small village of around 250 people. We’ve been working with and serving El Peñon for more than 20 years and have been blessed to see the work God has done in the village and in its people.
Our Other Ministries
Honduras is one of the poorest countries in Central America, with more than 60% of its population living on less than $3 per day. Beyond this, Honduras currently has the third highest crime rate in entire the world. Statistics aside, however, God has divinely placed our ministry in Honduras, and we feel blessed every day in our opportunity to serve such a loving people group.
Support the Mission
In a country where most citizens make less than $3 per day, the smallest donation can make a major difference. Whether you feel led to give once, monthly, or annually, we’ve made it quick and easy for you to support and share Christ’s love with the people of Honduras.
